Women Can Now Get Abortion Pill In The Mail Thanks To New Biden Policy

The FDA acting commissioner Janet Woodcock said in a letter on Monday that patients that need to terminate an early pregnancy will be able to access the medication by mail! What this means is that the Biden administration will finally allow patients to be prescribed and sent an abortion pill without the need for an in-person doctor’s appointment.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists had been advocating for the FDA to make it easier for people to receive the pill, and it’s finally been done! What this means is that patients will no longer have to risk exposure to the coronavirus themselves to get the pill.

The decision is another reversed restriction of the Trump-era that attempted to curb access to abortion medication.
Woodcock cited multiple studies that prove the pill poses little risk to people who choose not to attend an in-person doctor’s appointment, and she added that people will be prescribed the medication by a doctor over the phone before they’ll be able to receive it by mail.

This is the full statement issued by the FDA:
